Custom Base:
G3 Twilerina
Media(s) used:
Apoxie Clay, acrylic paint, wooden plaque and stain for base. 
Additional information:
Down here in Texas we don't have a real winter so I've never seen real snow in person.  It's a dream of mine to one day get to travel somewhere just to play in some snow, lol.  I have a little obsession with winter so this pony just embodies my feelings of the winter season.  This is by far my favorite custom I've ever made and it was definitely the most labor intensive.

Additional information:
I based this pony on a real horse, whose picture I'll attach.  I also made a family for Daddy Painted Draft, from a baity Seashell and a DG fakie.  They are shown in a few pics.  I would enter them as a family if there were a group category, but since I had to pick one, I chose the Daddy.  He has that soft pink muzzle and light blue eyes!  I just love the way he turned out and am toying with the idea of whether or not to kink his hair like his inspiration's...  But I'll leave that to the fates!  :D

Additional information:
I just loved this little cotton candy baby when I saw her, but she was rusty, frizzed beyond conditioning, and her eyes & symbols were all but gone!  So I dismantled her and cleaned her up, and she was REALLY fresh and clean when I finished.  I didn't know what she was going to be until I saw Parasol peeking over the laptop at me.  When my eyes landed on her, I knew she was the perfect color to have this baby!  So, introducing Mommy and Baby Parasol.
